Hamilton Storms to Hockenheim Pole

Hamilton, who is the title favourite this year, was substantially faster than anyone else, beating out teammate Adrian Sutil by nearly a second.

Guido van der Garde, who was recently dropped from the Renault Driver Development programme, put the disappointment behind him by running third.

Paul di Resta, quickest in the wet earlier today, continued his good form by claim fourth on the grid.

Rookie Sebastian Vettel completed another strong performance by setting the sixth quickest time behind Lucas de Grasi.
